Kang Yong-suk (born December 3, 1969) is a South Korean lawyer and a current non-partisan politician. He is known for expulsion from the Grand National Party due to his negative sexual remarks on women. He is also known for his antics against Ahn Cheol-Soo's political endeavors.[1]



Announcer insult[edit]

Kang had desecrated Announcer during a student dinner at Yonsei University on July 20, 2010. This has caused a mass legal action against him. He was later expelled from the Grand National Party in September 2010.[2]

Election Problems[edit]

He is involved in spreading a negative impression against a non-partisan candidate for Mayor of Seoul, Park Won-soon, based on a false allegation that Park forged his Harvard Law School degree.[3] This is to support the Grand National Party candidate, Na Kyung-won, the counterpart of Park.

Suing Choi Hyo-jong[edit]

He later sued South Korean comedian Choi Hyo-jong for "disrespecting the National Assembly" in a skit in Gag Concert. Chung Doo-un protested against Kang's decision "that could potentially undermine the ruling Grand National Party".[4] Comedian Kim Won-hyo protested against Kang's action on his Twitter account with a humorous remark.[5]
